The ISM can help you this Christmas

Perform with peace of mind

Christmas is a busy time of year for musicians when you want to perform with peace of mind. ISM membership offers the support you need this festive period, whether you're accompanying carol concerts or playing parties.


As a member, you will get a vital insurance package worth over £235, including £10m public liability insurance and 100k legal expenses insurance cover. Our unpaid fees service is here to ensure you get the money that you're owed and our in-house legal team can help you unravel any rights issues, sign contracts with confidence and much more besides.

Wellbeing services

We have recently launched two new wellbeing services to help you bounce back from tough times - physiotherapy is available if you get injured, while our counselling service offers structured appointments, including face-to-face counselling and CBT.


Access a wide variety of discounts on everything from sheet music and equipment to holidays and books, so you can save money, whether you're fixing broken strings or buying a few presents.

Expert advice

You can also prepare to go into 2020 organised and informed, with our wide range of industry-related online advice and toolkits, a tax helpline and helpful template contracts and much more besides.
